The Darby family in South Carolina apparently 
had its origin with Captain Michael Darby who was in 
St. Thomas Parish as early as 1710. From him de- 
scended Jacob Darby, who was a private in Capt. Moses 
Pearson's Company, 1780 to 1782, and is mentioned in 
the South Carolina records- He was the father of Asa 
Darby and the grandfather of Asa Darby, born 1802. 
Asa (2) Darby died in Newbury Co., S. C, in 1859. 
In 1860 his cousin, Asa L. Darby, in a sworn statement 
said: "I was born 28 Feb-, 1808, and removed to Clay 
Co., Ky., in 1830." 

Among the grandchildren of Asa Darby born 1802, 
was Mary Ellen Darby, born 23 Sept., 1859, who mar- 
ried John R. Marchand. 

Among the Darby marriages on record in South 
Carolina are the following : 

Michael Darby and Mary Warnock, 21 May, 1717, 
St- Thomas Parish. 

Mary Darby and Elias Bonneau, 30 Oct., 1746, St. 
Thomas Parish. 

James Darby and Margaret Elliott, 4 May, 1773, 

William Darby and Margaret Evans, 18 Aug., 1797, 

Robert Darby and Rebecca Sinkler, 23 Oct-, 1800, 

The children of Captain Michael Darby and Mary 
Warnock born in St. Thomas Parish, were : 

Hannah b. 21 Sept., 1718. 

Joseph b. 8 Dec , 1722. 

Mary b. 15 Nov., 1725. 

It is quite evident that Michael married three times, 
as the following records from St. Thomas Parish will 

Michael Darby and wife Judith: had Judith b. 
1 Nov, 1734. 

In the death records we find the following: 

3 Mch. 1732, Elizabeth, wife of Capt. Michael Darby. 

5 Nov., 1734, Judith, wife of Capt, Michael Darby. 

Feb- 1739, Captain Michael Darby. 

In the Laurens papers, in the Historical Society 
of South Carolina, in the register of Revolutionary sol- 
diers, appears the name of Jacob Darby, private in Cap- 
tain Pearson's company.

In the quaint village of Hingham, in County Nor- 
folk, England, the Lincolns were tradespeople as early 
as the 15th century. 

Samuel Lincoln, of Norfolk Co., came to New Eng- 
land in 1637 at the age of 18. He settled in Hingham, 
Mass., one of the early and most picturesque towns in 
the colony. 

Mordecai Lincoln, the fourth son of Samuel, was 
born in Hingham, 15 June, 1657. He married Sarah 
Jones, in Hull, Mass., and removed to Scituate, another 
quaint old town in 1704. 

The first son, Mordecai Lincoln, Jr., born 24 Apl., 
1686, with his younger brother Abraham, removed to 
Freehold, Monmouth Co., N. J. Abraham was the vil- 
lage blacksmith. 

In Freehold, N. J., Mordecai married in 1710 Han- 
nah Salter, daughter of Richard Salter, one of the lead- 
Berks Co., Pa. 
Berks Co., Pa., 1736. 

John Lincoln, eldest son of Mordecai, Jr., in 1758 
removed to Augusta Co., Va. Here in the wilderness 
he built one of the first log cabins. He had five sons, 
among them Abraham. 

Abraham, the second of the name, son of John, mar- 
ried Mary Shipley w who came from North Carolina; and 
they went to live on a farm in Tennessee in the Wau- 
tauga Valley. 



There is no more historic spot in America than the 
Wautauga Valley. Here the Wautauga Association set 
up the first free and independent government upon 'he 
continent. Here the King's Mountain boys gathered 
from the valleys and hills to go and fight one of the de- 
cisive battles of the American Revolution. 


At Wautauga, Thomas Lincoln, the father of Abra- 
ham, was born. He grew to be a tall and stalwart pio- 
neer and an expert hunter. While a lad he hired him- 
self to his uncle, Isaac Lincoln, living on Wautauga 


In 1782 Abraham and his son Thomas, grandfather 
and father of the President, moved in covered wagons 
to Kentucky. 


They entered a tract of 400 acres of land on Lick- 
ing creek, under a government land-warrant, and built 
a log cabin near Fort Beargrass, on the site now occu- 
pied by the city of Louisville. In the second year of 
this settlement Abraham Lincoln, while at work in his 
field, was slain by an Indian from an ambush. 


Thomas Lincoln married Nancy Hanks, 23 Septem- 
ber, 1806, and settled near Springfield, Ky. They had 
three children: Sarah, Abraham and Thomas. Sarah 
married Aaron Grigsby and died in middle life. Thom- 
as, who was two years younger than Abraham, died in 


In 1816 the Lincoln family moved to Spencer Coun- 
ty, Ind., where they built and lived in a log cabin, where 
Mrs. Lincoln died October 5, 1818, at the age of thir'y- 


After the death of Nancy Hanks, the father of 
Abraham Lincoln sought ou^ an early love, Sarah Bush 
Johnstone, who was still living in Kentucky, a widow, 
with three children, and for that time and region in 
very good circumstances. 




Thomas Lincoln began his courtship in this char- 
acteristic fashion: 

"Well, Mis' Johnstone, I have no wife, and you 
have no husband. I came on purpose to marry you. I 
knowed you from a gal, and you knowed me from a boy. 
I have no time to lose, and if you are willing, let it be 
done straight off. ' ' 


The following day they were married, and started 
for his home in Indiana, with a four-horse wagon con- 
taining her property. This wedding journey to his dis- 
tant cabin occupied several days. 


Sarah Bush, the stepmother of Abraham Lincoln, 
was born in Kentucky about 1785. Little is known of 
her early life. Though entirely without education, she 
was a woman of strong character, and intelligence. She 
was blessed with sterling good sense in an uncommon 


At once a strong friendship sprang up between her 
and the little Abe, who was ignorant, but loving and 
sweet-tempered. Years only deepened their regard. In 
after years Abe called her his "angel of a mother" and 
said she was the first person to make him feel like a 
human being. She died 10 April, 1869. 


The family moved once more in 1830, this time to 
Illinois, where they built another log cabin, near Decatur, 
Macon Co. After assisting his father to build the cabin, 
split rails and fence and plough fifteen acres of land, 
Abraham Lincoln struck out for himself, hiring himself 
to any who needed manual labor. His father died in 


In the spring of 1833, Lincoln was appointed Post- 
master at New Salem, 111., and held the office for three 
years. Its emoluments were slender and its duties light. 
The mails were so scanty that he was said to carry them 
in his hat, and he is also reported to have read every 
newspaper that arrived. 



Mary Todd Lincoln, the wife of the President, was? 
born in Lexington, Ky., 12 Dec., 1818. Her father, 
Robert S. Todd, was a Kentucky pioneer. 


When Mary Todd was twenty-one she visited a mar- 
ried sister in Springfield, 111, and there met Abraham 
Lincoln, a rising young lawyer. They were married 
4 Nov., 1842. 


The lean, lank figure of Mr. Lincoln is familiar to 
everyone. When he was elected President he was smooth 
shaven and had never grown a beard. 


WTien the President-elect passed through Roches- 
ter, N. Y., in February, 1861, en route to Washing- 
ton, a little girl remarked to him: "Mr. Lincoln, 
your face would not seem so long, and you would look 
better if you wore whiskers.'' The President laughed, 
thanked the young miss, and went his way. Thereafter 
he let his beard grow.

The name of Bonython is now extinct in New Eng- 
land. Capt. Richard Bonython settled in Saco, Maine, 
in 1629. His son, John, a man of ill-temper and bad 
habits, was known as the Sagamore of Saco and on his 
tomb was written the couplet, which represents John 
going to the evil spirit of the Indians. 

"Here lies Bonython, the Sagamore of Saco: 
He lived a rogue, and died a knave and went to 
Hobomocko. ' ' 


Many of the early settlers who were registered oti 
J h* early colonial records as weavers, blacksmiths, tailors 
and similar trades, in reali+v were of much higher de- 
scent than some of those who simply wrote the word 
"Gentleman" after their names. The old artisans' 
builds of Europe and England were of anything but 
plebeian origin and had the closest relations wi'h the 
Irghest orders of chivalry.

Col. John Bu'ler, a tory, was the chief figure in the 
Massacre of Wyoming in 1778, for which Brant, the 
Indian, has been unjustly branded with infamy. Butler 
ordered a woman and child to be killed, but Brant pro- 
tested and saved their lives, and thus the Indian was 
the man of humanity and the white man was the savage. 


Mistress Katherine Roundell in her will dated 1522, 
wrote in a humorous vein. "I give to my son Thomas, 
half a mare, half a saddle and half a cart wheel.' ' Which 
would be slow going for Thomas.

the McDonalds of south Carolina 

The McDonalds of South Carolina, like those of 
Virginia and North Carolina, come from the Highlands 
of Scotland, and descend from Hugh McDonald, brother 
of Ivan 1, King of the Isles. The present family in 
South Carolina came from County Inverness. Two 
families settled in Cher aw prior to the Revolutionary 

The earliest settler of whom there is a record was 
Daniel McDonald born in Scotland 1723, and who died 
in Lancaster, S. Carolina in 1797. In 1745, he married 
Rebecca Middleton, and had numerous children among 
them John and Mary. Mary married George Wade, 
who was a brave soldier and was wounded at the Battle 
of Savannah. Daniel McDonald, although an old man, 
served two years in the Sonth Carolina militia, in the 
defense of his state. 

John McDonald was a private serving from 1777 to 
1782 and is mentioned in Bishop Gregg's "History of 
Old Cheraw. " He married Elizabeth, daughter of 
George Inglis or English, who on 30 April, 1759, married 
Claudia Elliott at Stone, S. Carolina. His son John 
is buried in St. Luke's Churchyard, Lee Co., S. Caro- 
lina . 

Alexander McDonald, also served in the Revolution 
and was taken as a prisoner of war, to Salisbury, North 
Carolina. His son Alexander McDonald married 5 Sept. 
1818, Mary M. Oliver and removed to Georgia. 

Another member of the family, Charles James Mc 
Donald born in Charlestown, S. Carolina, 9 July 1793, 
removed with his parents to Hancock Co., Ga., graduat- 
ed at the S. Carolina College at Columbia in 1816, 
studied law under Noel Crawford, and was elected Gov- 
ernor of Georgia and served his full term of four years. 

Another noted McDonald who died in South Caro- 
lina in 1796 was William who was a Lieut. Colonel in 
Gen. Francis Marion's brigade in 1782. He was born 
in Scotland in 1720. He married in 1761 Martha 
Richardson, whose father Richard Richardson, born in 
1705, although an old man in 1776, was at the battle of 


Fort Moultrie and was takeu prisoner at Charleston. 
William McDonald Jr., born in 1773, died 1818, married 
Martha Conturier; their daughter Martha married John 
(iambic Davis.

dinavian side, it is quite common and of very honorable 
origin. The Scandinavian name seems to be derived 
from a title of Odin. One of the ancient Scandinavian 
Browns was surnamed "The White," showing clearly 


that it was not from the complexion, unless indeed he 
was a whity-brown. As for the antiquity of the name 
in England, the first Brown came over with Hen gist 
and Horsa in 449, and the second with Hastings in 893. 
One William Brown was a Burgess for Derby in 1298. 
There are only five surnames of England and Wales 
more common than Brown. There are 571 persons by 
the name of Brown in the general index of the New 
England Historical and Genealogical Register, that 
number, as to the names herein considered, being ex- 
ceeded only by about 1200 for Smith and by about 450 
for White. There are one hundred and thirty-two Brit- 
ish crests for the name Brown, two hundred and twenty- 
three works containing Brown genealogy, sixteen places 
named Brown, thirty persons of that name have served 
in the United States Congress, and there were one hun- 
dred and eighty-seven Brown families in Connecticut 
in 1790.

leaves. The hand holds three spears. The Motto is

YOUNGS :— The Youngs family of Southold, L. I., is

claimed by the historian of the family, Selah Youngs, 
Jr., in his otherwise careful "History of the Youngs 
Family," published in New York in 1907. The first 
known ancestor of the Southold family is the Rev. Chris- 
topher Yonges, supposed to have been born about 1545, 
who died at Southwold, Suffolk, Eng., June 14, 1626, 
and was buried two days later in the chancel of the 
parish church, as testified to by a brass yet remaining in 
place: "Here lyeth interred yee body of Mr. Christo- 
pher Yonges, who departed this life 14 June, anno dom- 
ine 1626," etc. The full inscription is given in the his- 
tory of the Youngs family. He had been minister at 
Southold. The parish register contains the following 
entry : ' ' Christopher Yonge was inducted into the living 
of Reydon and Southwold January 14, 1611." The 
Southwold register does not commence until 1602, and 
that of Reydon not until 1712, but the family of Rev. 
Christopher has been recovered from his will and from 
sundry entries on the register.

(U. S. Pension Record) 

Nathan Hall of Virginia, born about 1747, in Hanover 
Co., Va. Removed to Albemarle Co. before the "War. 
Applied for pension Oct. 1, 1832. Hall was drafted three 
times. Twice he procured a substitute (during 1780, he 
thinks), and in 1781 he marched from Albemarle under 
Col. Reuben Lindsey, and joined the army under Gen- 
eral Lafayette at Richmond. During his first month's 
service he participated in what was commonly called 
the Wild Goose Chase, which was after the march through 
Hanover Co. to Fredericksburg, and through Louisa 
Co., and to the three notched road to Mychunk Creek. 
He was then sent to Albemarle Barracks, where he served 
as shoemaker for the troops for six months. The pris- 
oners from Burgoyne's army had been removed over 
the mountains and a number of tailors, shoemakers, sad- 
dlers, etc., were employed at the Barracks, on work 
for the American army. He recalls the names of Cap- 
tains Tibbs and John Peyton, General Thomas Nelson, 
and (he thinks) Capt. Thomas Miller. 

Robert Lindsey certifies that Nathan Hall, Sr., lived 
with him as miller for 5 years. "I do believe there does 
not exist a more honest, just man in the State." . . . 
"there are few men more to be depended on as to what 
he may say or make oath to." 

W. T. Alligree relates recommending Hall to Rev. 
John B. Magruder as a keeper of his grist mill, and re- 
ceiving the minister's thanks a year or more later for 
sending him so honest and good a man. 

Rev. Thornton Rogers, Abraham Hawley who had 
known Hall for 16 years, and Charles Huckstep who 
had known Hall for 50 years, testify in his behalf.

John Young of Massachusetts, was born in March, 
1763. He was a Revolutionary soldier and fought two 
engagements under General Washington. His records 
are in the Boston State House. His brothers William, 
born Feb. 28, 1761, and Joseph, born March 21, 1765,

were four William Youngs worshipping in the Old South 
Church between 1720 and 1730, and two of them had 
wives named Hannah.

Vol. X JANUARY, 1922 No. 6 


The genealogy of the Bramhall Family, with some ac- 
count of the history of the family and of Bramhall Hall 
in East Cheshire, England, upon which Judge Charles 
H. Bramhall, of Columbia county, N. Y., and his sons, 
William L. and Frank J., were at work for some twenty 
years, is finally ready, after all the compilers have passed 
away. The Bramhalls (Bramall, Bromale, etc.) are 
traced through Domesday Book to the time of Edward 
the Confessor (1042-1066). The Bramhall estates went 
to the Davenport family by the marriage of Alice, daugh- 
ter of Sir Geoffry de Bromale, to John de Davenport of 
Weltrough in 1379. 

The male line entitled to bear arms having become ex- 
tinct, they were regranted, in the last year but one of 
Elizabeth, 1602, to John Bramhall, Alderman, of Pon- 
tefract, Yorkshire, " sable, a lion rampant or; crest, a 
lion passant or." In 1628, under Charles I., the arms 
were regranted to the Rev. John Bramhall, Dean of 
Ripon, son of Peter Bramhall and grandson of the Al- 
derman, above, "descended from the ancient family of 
Bramhall, of Bramhall, county Cheshire. " He was chap- 
lain to Wentworth (later Earl of Stratford), and was 
made successively Bishop of Derry and Archbishop of 
Armagh and Primate of All Ireland. He was also speak- 
er of the Irish House of Lords. He married, in York- 
shire, a widow, Ellinor Halley, and. upon his death, 25 
June, 1663, left four children : Sir Thomas Bramhall, 
Bart., who married a daughter of Sir Paul Davys and 
died without issue; Isabella, who married Sir James 
Graham, son of William, Earl of Monteith, and whose 
daughter Ellinor married Sir Arthur Rawdon of Moira ; 
Jane, who married Alderman Toxteith of Drogheda; 
and Anne, who married Standish Hartstonge, one of the 
barons of the exchequer. Bramhall Hall, of which sev- 
eral views are given in the Genealogy, is described on 


competent authority as the finest example remaining of 
the Elizabethan timber and mortar or "magpie" archi- 
tecture in England. Earwaker and Ormerod, in their 
histories of Cheshire, and Thomas Nash, in his "Man- 
sions of England," sustain this view. 

The Bramhalls of America are traced directly to 
James Bramhall, R. N., and his wife, Lady Florence 
Temple. James was a son of Cornelius Bramhall of 
Canterbury. Three of their children, George, Joseph 
and Mary, came to Plymouth about 1680. George went 
to Casco (now Portland), Maine, then a part of Ply- 
mouth Colony, and was killed by Indians in an action 
at what is still called Bramhall Hill. The names of 
fourteen of the family who were soldiers or sailors in 
the Revolutionary War, are given.

John Carter was a native of Virginia and lived in 
Richmond. He moved to Georgia about the year 1792 
and settled in Wilkes County within a mile of Wash- 
ington, southeast from the town on one of the Augusta 
roads. His first wife was Lucy Doran. His second was 
Rebecca Richardson. By her he had only child Charles 
Richardson Carter. Rebecca died and he married a 
widow Terrell. Her maiden name was Anthony. By 
her he had five sons, Joseph, Robert, John, James and 
George Carter. 

Charles Richardson Carter married Jane Harrison 
Moore. Robert Carter died young, without marrying. 
Joseph Carter married Sarah Hillard. Had one son by 
her and he died. Second wife was a widow. Had no 
children by her. John Carter married Sarah H. Willis. 
He died without children. James Carter married • Ra- 
chel Chappel of Warren County. By her he had nine 
children, to wit: Elizabeth, Mary, etc. George Carter 
married Margaret Borum of Wilkes County. Second 
wife was Sarah Geary. By her he had three daughters, 
Winnie, Laura and Georgia. 

John Carter had two brothers, William and Robin 
Carter. William Carter married Elizabeth Grimes. By 
her he had Mary Carter (who married William Moore 
Booker), Sterling Grimes Carter, Elizabeth, Martha and 


Thomas C. Carter. Robin Carter married and had 
three children. Thomas A., Francis Scott and John 
Cornelison Carter. 

Sterling Grimes Carter married, but left no children. 
Elizabeth Carter married a Mr. March and he died, and 
she married William S. Taylor, or "Black Taylor" as he 
was called. 

When Elizabeth Taylor died her husband married 
Anne Booker, who was his wife's niece. She was a 
widow Beal at the time. They moved to Mississippi, 
and their oldest daughter Georgia Taylor is now Mrs. 
Jno. M. Allen, of Tupelo, Miss. He was called "Pi- 
rate" John Allen when he was in Congress. Martha 
Carter married John Murphy. Thomas Carter mar- 
ried in Coweta County. 

James Carter, a nephew of John Williams and Robin 
Carter, moved from Virginia at the same time his uncle 
did and settled in Elbert County. He had several 
children, Sarah, Martha and Ann. Sarah married Dr. 
Stephen A. Heard of Elbert County. They had six 
or seven children. Stephen G. Heard was one. Mar- 
tha Carter married Samuel Cockage of Columbus, Ga. 
Ann Carter never married. 

William Carter's wife was Elizabeth Grimes Carter 
who was a sister of William A. and Thomas Grimes of 
Greensboro, Ga. William A. Grimes married Julia 
Lassiter. They had one son, Henry. Alsa Holt's wife 
was own first cousin of Thomas Grimes of Greensboro. 

(This record of the Carter family was found among the 
papers of John Alexander Stephens, who was a son of John 
Lindsay and Mary Elizabeth (Booker) Stephens.) 

One of the early settlers of Ryegate, Vt., was John 
Cameron. He was an ardent admirer of Thomas Jef- 
ferson, and declared that the next child born to him 
should bear the name of the Virginian statesman. Con- 
trary to his hopes, the next child was a girl; but with 
true Scotch persistency, he had her christened Thomas 
Jefferson. The second name was familiarly abbreviated 
into " Jeffie," and made a tolerable Christian name for 
a girl.

Bishop Mead, of Virginia, occasionally allowed him- 
self to say a witty thing, though habitually very grave. 
He was once lamenting the neglect of education in the 
State, and remarked with a significant expression "Our 
girls are poorly educated, but our boys will never find 
it out." 

Baron Frederick William Steuben, major-general of 
the American Army, who died 1794, aged 61, was a 
guest at the house of Mrs. Livingston, mother of the 
chancellor of New York, and was introduced to a Miss 
Sheaff. "I am happy," he said, "to be presented 
to you, though at a great risk; from my youth I have 
been cautioned against mischief; but I had no idea, that 
her attractions were so powerful."

The first of the Hoover family to come to Atmerica 
was Andrew Huber, who was born in Baden, Germany, 
and who settled in Maryland in 1740. His wife was 
Margaret Foutz. They were the parents of eight chil- 

Jonas, who married Rachel Briles. 

Andrew, who married Elizabeth Waymire. 

Jacob, who removed to North Carolina. 

Daniel, who died in Stillwater, Ohio. 

David, who died in Stillwater, Ohio. 

John, of North Carolina. 

Peter, of North Carolina. 

Henry, of North Carolina. 

The direct ancestor of Herbert Clark Hoover was 
John Hoover, born in North Carolina, the son of the 
original Andrew Huber* of Maryland. He married Sarah 
Burkett, and removing to Ohio, in his later years, he 
died in West Milton, in the Buckeye State. His fourth 
son was Jesse Hoover, born in 1799, in Hugh Wara 
River, North Carolina, and who died in West Branch, 
Iowa, in November, 1856. In 1819, he married Rebecca 
Yount, at West Milton, Miami Co., Ohio, and removed 
to Iowa in 1854. He was the great grandfather of 
Herbert. Eli Hoover, the first son of Jesse, and grand- 
father of Herbert, was born October 6, 1820, in Miami 
Co., Ohio, and died July 24, 1892, at Hubbard, Iowa. 
He married, first, Mary Davis, who died 1852, in Ohio, 
and married, second, August 17, 1854, in Iowa, Han- 
nah Leonnard, who was born in Ireland in 1832. 

The father of Herbert Clark Hoover was Jesse, the 
third child of Eli and his first wife, Mary Davis. Jesse 


was born September 2, 1847, and was baptized Jesse 
Clark Hoover. He died December 13, 1880, at West 
Branch, Iowa. He married March 12, 1870, Huldah 
Hannah Minthorn, a minister in the Society of Friends. 
She died in February, 1883. The issue of this marriage 
were the two Hoover brothers of the present day and 
one daughter. 

Theodore Jesse Hoover, born January 28, 1871. 

Herbert Clark Hoover, born August 10, 1874. 

Mary, born 1876. 

Theodore was educated at the Pacific Academy, Ore- 
gon; Penn College, Iowa; and at the Leland Stanford 
University. In June, 1899, he married in San Fran- 
cisco, Mildred Crew Brooke, daughter of Thomas Snow- 
den Brooke, of Maryland. They have three children, 
Mildred, Hulda and Louise, the latter having been born 
in London, in 1908, where Mr. Hoover makes his home 
at 65 Addison Road, West London. He is a member of 
the Royal Automobile Club of London, and is a Fellow 
in the Royal Geographic Society, and the Royal Zoologi- 
cal Society. 

Herbert C. Hoover is a geologist by profession, and 
like his brother is a graduate of the Leland Stanford, 
Jr., University, and soon after leaving college he made 
extensive explorations in the interior of China, and was 
in Tiensin during the Boxer disturbances. In 1917, he 
was General Manager of the Chinese Engineering and 
Mining Company, and a managing director of the Zinc 
Corporation, Ltd., of London. Mr. Hoover married, 
February 10, 1899, Lou Henry of Monterey, Cal. In 
1917 he gave his home address, or rather his residence, 
as Red House, Hornton Street, London, England. Mr. 
Hoover has two sons, Herbert Charles and Allen Henry. 

An English sculptor was ordered to engrave upon a 
tombstone the following words: "She was a crown to 
her husband." The stone, being small, he engraved 
upon it: "She was 5s to her husband."

Elizabeth Coy of Boston, who died in the year 1700, 
was married five times. 'Twas a case of "Coy and hard 
to please." 

Elbridge Gerry, in a newspaper dated June 8, 1775, 
advertises the loss of "an outside garment commonly 
called a French great coat, with a crimson velvet cape;" 
and in the same paper for June 3, 1779, another person 
advertises the loss of "a chocolate coloured French 
great coat, with a crimson velvet cape but little the worse 
for wear." 

A birth is found recorded in an old family Bible at 
West Haven, Conn., as follows: "Elizabeth Jones, born 
on the 20th of November, 1786, according to the best 
of her recollection."

From one of our readers we have the following mem- 
orandum concerning the kinsmen of John Keats, the 
poet, in this country. George Keats, as is known, was 
John 's nearest brother, about a year and a half younger. 
He emigrated to America in 1818, and died in Louis- 
ville, Ky., in 1842. 

"George Keats had but one son, John. He was 
living a farmer and surveyor in the distant Middle 
West in the early '90 's — a long time ago. I believe 
I have heard that he died soon after he wrote me then : 
my only communication from him, a very perfunctory 
one. I am not sure — he did not say so in that sole 


letter — but I believe he was not married ; I am almost 
sure of it. George also had several daughters — one, 
Emma, I (believe, married a Speed. John Gjilmore 
Speed, their son, died a number of years ago in Phila- 
delphia. Whether he had children I don't know; just 
at this moment I am unable to put my hands on many 
of my Keats things, among them the genealogical tables 
I made up five and twenty years ago. 

" There were, some dozen or eighteen years ago, sev- 
eral intelligent females — school teachers, I believej — 
who were either granddaughters or great-granddaugh- 
ters of George Keats. Two, I remember, came to see 
me, one from the far South and the other from the 


John Olin, the founder of the family line in Ameri- 
ca, was an involuntary emigrant to the new world in 
1678. He was a native of Wales, who at the age of 
fourteen years was "pressed" by a recruiting gang for 
service in the royal navy. When the man-of-war to 
which he had been consigned entered Boston harbor, 
young Olin improved an early opportunity to desert, 
and fled for refuge to Rhode Island. Here, in due time, 
he married and reared a large family. After the In- 
dian wars, he removed to Vermont, locating at Shafts- 
bury and, later, at Bennington. The descendants of 
John Olin in America have borne an honorable and 
frequently a prominent part in the life of many states 
and communities. The Vermont Olins took an active 
and creditable part in the Revolution and in the civil 
life of the state. Gideon Olin, of Shaftsbury, was a 
major in the Revolutionary army, Chief Justice of Ver- 
mont from 1793 to 1796, and a member of Congress for 
several years. Henry Olin was supreme judge for 
twenty-three years, and his son, Stephen Olin, served 
as president of Middletown University, Conn. Some of 
the Whittemore, Edmunds and Dyer families of Ver- 
mont, married Olins. Charles Dyer, who settled in 
Chicago in 1837, bore a prominent part in the develop- 
ment of the inland metropolis, and was given a diploma- 
tic appointment abroad by President Lincoln.

white cloth over it, morning and evening. Dalmer, a 
respectable baker and musician, noticed her, bought her 
business, and made a song and set it to music in behalf 
of Sally Lunn. This composition became the street fav- 
orite; barrows were made to distribute the nice cakes. 
Dalmer profited thereby, and retired; and to this day, 
the Sally-Lunn cake claims preeminence in all cities of

(Copyright, 1922, By William M. Clemens. All Rights Reserved.) 


IN ONE of numerous and inconsequential newspaper 
skits, Mark Twain called upon his fellow citizens 
to honor the memory of Adam, the first man and 
our common ancestor. In truth he purposed inaugura- 
ting a fund for the erection of a monument to the mem- 
ory of Adam. Subsequently this project was carried 
forward by a resident of New Jersey and such a monu- 
ment now exists. What is more, the journalistic jest of 
Mark Tw r ain becomes a solemn fact, inasmuch as we 
have been enabled to trace our ancestry hence to Adam 
without a break in the succeeding generations. Gen- 
ealogy has surmounted this most difficult of problems. 

In common with every other Clemens family in the 
new world, Mark Twain proverbially harked back to 
Geoffrey Clemens as his probable ancestor; this same 
Goeffrey who as a member of Cromwell's Army, was 
duly beheaded by Charles I. In like manner every 
Clemens who survives in this day, claims at least a 
cousinship to the great American humorist. Alas, no 
Clemens male can call Mark Twain his kin. His 
younger brother, Orion of Keokuk, Iowa, who died a 
few years ago ,was the last of the race. 

Ambitious and ever pleased to make periodical pil- 
grimages to Southwestern Virgina to visit his kinfolks, 
Samuel L. Clemens found there among the hills of 
Bedford and Campbell counties, his favorite aunt, a 
Lampton, or a beloved cousin, a Goggin, or a Johnson; 
or in Kentucky, a Montgomery or Casey connection, but 
never a Clemens. Mark Twain was never a Clemens, 
mentally, physically or spiritually. He received no 


hereditary prestige, no hand-down attributes, no throw- 
back from a Clemens ancestor. His wit, his humor, 
his ambition, his intellect, all that he possessed in char- 
acter, mind and body, came from the women of his 
descent, much from his mother, more from his grand- 
mother; still more from the wives and mothers of ear- 
lier generations, not only in this country but in Eng- 
land. He was the sole heir to his women and his 
womenkind and the influence on his life, character and 
work was ever the influence of the feminine. He him- 
self has said, only a brief while before the passing of 
his immortal soul, that two women had been the two 
dams that blocked his current. First, his mother who 
tried to make him good, and second, his wife who tried 
to make him a gentleman. 

When Mark Twain embarked upon the Great Ad- 
venture, as the late Charles Frohman so aptly said, 
he was in ignorance as to his ancestry beyond the mar- 
riage of his grandfather Samuel Clemens to Pamela 
Goggin, in Campbell county, Virginia, 23 October, 
1797. Whether he had in his pedigree a Clemens who 
fought in the War of the Revolution, he knew not. Be- 
yond the poor, hardscrabble farmer who was his grand 
pere, Mark Twain lived and died dismally in the dark- 
ness of his past. In jest he wrote and spoke of Pope 
Clemens and the regicide of Cromwell's time, but this 
was mere fancy. 

Years of research have at last given us the facts as 
obtained from various and many obscure, but authori- 
tative sources. Musty Court and Chancery records, 
rural graveyards in the backwoods of Virginia, old 
wills, documents and memoranda of fragmentary his- 
tory, aided in the work, which we might designate the 
Mark Twain Book of Genesis, if not, the Book of Rev- 
elation as well. 

In the preparation of the chronicles, to follow this 
apparently incongruous introduction, we have necessar- 
ily divided the subject in hand into two parts. The first 
will deal wholly with the maternal ancestry of Saimiel 
L. Clemens, which will be the story of his great and 
good mother, whose line of descent comes from a noble 
castle in County Durham owned by the Lambtons, a 
name which in recent generations became the Lamptons 


of Virginia. In Jane Lampton we have one of the 
early pioneers of the republic who followed the intiner- 
ant fortunes of an erratic husband through various 
emigrations that led from Virginia to Tennessee, thence 
to Kentucky and to Missouri, where Mark Twain was 
born. We will find, too, in our work of research, that 
this American mother named her son Samuel Lampton 
Clemens, and not Langhorne, as history and biography 
has led us to believe. We will find, too, in Uncle James 
Lampton the original prototype of the immortal Col- 
onel Sellers, and how Uncle Judge Quarles, with little 
Sam on his knee in the mountain home in Tennessee, 
told the youthful Mark Twain the first and original 
story of the ever celebrated Jumping Frog. 

In the second part of this human document, entitled 
''The Paternal Clemens Ancestry," will be told the 
romantic story of a young and dashing British widow, 
encumbered with four small children, arriving here, 
in the troopship George, with only soldiers and ser- 
vants as companions, on a slow and perilous voyage of 
two months, and how this gentlewoman, the first on 
American soil, stepped ashore at Jamestown, in the 
Old Dominion, in the year 1610, to take possession of 
her shares in the Virginia Company, bequeathed by her 
uncle, Sir Nicholas Fuller, this being her only patri- 
mony, and how she later married one of the most emi- 
nent men of the new colony of Virginia. How the 
daughter and three sons of this first gentlewoman grew 
to their full stature in the wilds of the new world, de- 
generating slowly one generation after another, as they 
penetrated further and further into the wilderness, 
into tribes of low, ignorant and poverty-stricken moun- 
taineers; only after several generations to rise again 
through the female influence of their families, into a 
race that finally found once more the high-water mark 
of intelligence in the mind and work of Mark Twain 

The editor of these chronicles, while aware of the 
sombreness of genealogical material, has endeavored to 
detour long and frequently from the dusty road of 
ancestral history, in the hope of adding at least some 
touch of human nature in the narrative, and giving the 
ensemble the lights and shadows that properly aie the 
colors which we wish to place upon the canvas. 


The Maternal Ancestry of Samuel L. Clemens 

JANE LAMPTON, the mother of Mark Twain, a 
great and good woman, was a Lampton of the 
Lamptons, and all the Lampton women were both 
great and good in their womanhood. From a British 
ancestry the Lamptons inherited frugality, character, 
honesty and virtue. Turn where we will, delve where 
we must, we find the Lampton women the highest types 
the world has ever known, not in the social hall, nor 
the promenade, nor in the glass of fashion, but in the 
home, by the fireside and the cradle of the infant, 
through generation after generation of wives of strong 
men of the forest and field, and the mothers of still 
stronger men who made their names known in the 
higher walks of life. Mark Twain has said that his 
mother tried to make him good. This was the message 
the Lampton women brought to this world, to make her 
man folk good. We know of no exceptions, and to bet- 
ter illustrate the Lampton women, we quote this poetic 
tribute to a Susan of the family, and all the Lampton 
women were like Susan. 

''Busy at her work all day, 
Never asks a cent of pay, 
Thinks it ought to be that way — 
Thank the Lord for Susan. 

Singin' when she wants to sing, 
Like the robins in the Spring, 
Scoldin' some like everything — 
Thank the Lord for Susan. 

Always ready, day or night, 
Always willin' — she's a sight 
When it comes to doin' right — 
Thank the Lord for Susan. 

Me and seven children's, what 
She looks after, sick or not, 
And she's Mother to the lot — 
Thank the Lord for Susan. 

Goes to church on Sundays, too, 
'Long with all she's got to do, 
It's her that's goin' to pull us through — 
Thank the Lord for Susan. 


In her hair are streaks of gray, 
And the crow's feet come to stay, 
But I like her best that way — 
Thank the Lord for Susan. 

Made of consecrated clay, 
She gets better every day — 
Thank the Lord for Susan. 

The Larabtons of England, a house of ancient line- 
age, dating back to the Twelfth Century, were exam- 
ples of courage and honor, loyalty and benevolence. 
In County Durham, in a quaint old town named Ches- 
terlee-street, is the Lampton Castle of today, the home 
of the Earl of Durham. The castle is not a baronial 
one, being comparatively new — only four hundred years 
old. The present Earl of Durham, John H. Lampton, 
was made Knight of the Garter by Edward the Sev- 
enth, and is a special favorite of George the Fifth. The 
reigning English Lamptons are enormously wealthly, 
being owners of the famous Lampton collieries. 

And from this same County Durham come the Amer- 
ican Lamptons, Samuel and William, who arrived 
in Virginia in the year 1740. 

SAMUEL L. Clemens was a debtor to the female 
side of his ancestry. From the Lamptons he in- 
herited more than he knew. His father, John 
Marshall Clemens, a poor backwoods justice and school 
teacher, had small talent to bestow upon his son, but 
from Jane Lampton, his mother, Mark Twain was be- 
holden for the qualities that make for the foundation 
of manhood. 

Lord Brougham was one of the first public men in 
England to recognize the value of female ancestry. His 
father had been engaged to be married to a Miss Mary 
Whelpdale, "the last of a purely Saxon race," who 
died shortly before the day fixed for the wedding. Her 
affianced bridegroom consoled himself a little later by 
marrying the neice of Robertson, the historian. Lord 
Brougham declared his belief that if his mother had 
been Miss Whelpdale he would have remained in the 
state of respectable mediocrity in which his forefathers 
had lived and died. He traced the power of achieve- 
ment which had raised him from an obscure Scottish 


advocate to be a great tribune of the English people to 
the energy hereditary to the Scottish clans from his 

The brothers Lampton, William and Samuel, who 
left England for Virginia in the year 1740, were the 
sons of Joshua Lampton, of County Durham. There 
were other sons and daughters of Joshua who remained 
in England. All spelled the name with the "b" and 
not the "p." As Mark Twain once said, his forefathers 
turned the "b" upside down, and anyway he consid- 
ered them mighty poor spellers on this account. The 
Joshua of Durham was a son of John Lambton, whose 
sister Margaret became the wife of Sir Robert Eden. 

In the new world of Virginia, the brothers Samuel 
and William became small farmers. Shortly after their 
arrival the Earl of Durham died at the family estate 
in Chesterlee Street, and the Samuel of Virginia, had 
he remained in England or returned to County Dur- 
ham, would have succeeded to the Earldom. With the 
fortunes of Samuel, this chronicle has little in com- 
mon, but with William Lampton, the maternal an- 
cestor of Mark Twain, as well as the ancestor of Henri 
Watterson, the eminent journalist of Kentucky, and of 
Jefferson Davis, the president ' of the Confederacy, we 
have much to consider and to dwell upon. 

Quite evident the early Lamptons of Virginia, were 
not of the landholding class. William was not a man 
of property. Few deeds are of record as to estates and 
plantations. Henry and Joshua, the sons of the first 
Samuel, owned considerable acreage in Culpeper Coun- 
ty, evidently accumulated after the death of their father. 
From all we can glean, William Lampton was a poor 
farmer, renting on shares or employed as overseer. 

In 1763, while residing temporarily in Page County, 
Virginia, William married Miss Patsy Schooler, of 
which we can learn but little, save that she was the 
daughter of a worthy planter. Two years after his 
marriage, William Lampton, with other hardy and ad- 
venturesome spirits, made the long and tedious over- 
land journey, in a caravan of oxen and covered wagons, 
to the wild and unsettled West, into Clark County, 
Kentucky, where a home was established in the hamlet 
of Winchester. And here he passed to his fathers, for 


in the family Bible we find this record: " William 
Lampton, died in 1790, aged 66 years." 

Eleven were the number of the children born to 
William Lampton and his wife, Patsy Schooler, eight 
sons and three daughters. The first five were sons: 
William, 1764; John, 1766; Lewis, 1768; Benjamin, 
1770; and Samuel, 1772. The others following were: 
Sally, 1775; Mary, 1777; Joshua, 1779; Susan, 1781; 
Wharton, 1784; and James, 1787. 

The descendants of William Lampton, not unlike 
the twelve tribes of Israel, spread over the great West 
and Southwest, chiefly in Kentucky, Mississippi,, Mis- 
souri, Illinois, Ohio, Colorado, Arkansas and California. 
The daughters of William married into the families of 
Trowbridge, Crosswhite and McKenzie. 

Benjamin Lampton, fourth son of William, and the 
grandfather of Mark Twain, born in Page County, Vir- 
ginia, in 1770, removed first from Virginia to Ken- 
tucky, thence to Tennessee and later to Missouri, where 
he died 18, March, 1837, and is buried at Florida, Mon- 
roe County. He was married in Kentucky to Miss 
Sallie Hays. Their first child Jane, became the wife of 
John Marshall Clemens and the mother of Mark Twain. 
A sister Patsy, married Judge John A. Quarles of Mon- 
roe County, Missouri. The detailed record of the fam- 
ily as found in the traditional Bible, reads thus: 
Record of Deaths. 

1. William Lampton, died 25, February, 1790, aged 

66 years. 

2. William Lampton, oldest son of the above, died 2 

November, 1803. 

3. Patsy Schooler Lampton, mother, died 26 January, 


4. Sallie Lampton Trowbridge, died 1821, in Indiana. 

5. Lewis Lampton, died 12 April, 1824. 

6. Benjamin Lampton, died 18 March, 1837. 

7. Wharton Lampton, died September, 1853. 

The mother of Miss Hays was a Casey, a relative, 
possibly a sister, of General William Casey of Adair 
County, Kentucky, and was closely related to the Mont- 
gomeries, the Logans, the Adairs and other prominent 
Colonial families of Kentucky. William Montgomery 


who had been of Pennsylvania and Virginia, went to 
Kentucky in the autumn of 1779, following the fortunes 
of his son-in-law, General Benjamin Logan, the intrep- 
id pioneer and soldier, who was one of the leaders in 
the military operations against the Indians. In 1781, 
William Montgomery at his home in Green River, 
was killed by the Indians. At the same time his son, 
John Montgomery, who lived in a nearby cabin, was 
also killed. His son, William, and his daugheters, Jane 
and Betsey escaped. Jane Montgomery afterward mar- 
reid General William Casey, of Adair County, Ken- 
tucky. Her elder sister, Anne, married General Benja- 
min Logan, and after his death she married General 
James Knox, of Scotch-Irish descent, one of the earliest 
explorers of the Kentucky wilderness. 

Thus through his maternal grandmother, Mark 
Twain inherited, to no small degree, the blood and char- 
acter of these intrepid pioneers of Kentucky. 

SALLIE HAYS, wife of Benjamin Lampton, and 
the maternal grandmother of Mark Twain, was 
near kin of Captain John Hays, who served in 
the War of the Revolution from Rockbridge County, 
Virginia, enlisting in September, 1777, and participat- 
ing in the battles of Valley Forge, Monmouth and 
Trenton. When later he applied for a pension, as> stip- 
ulated in his affidavit on file in Washington, his sole 
possessions consisted of two cows and three hogs valued 
at thirty dollars. Such was the poverty of an ancestor. 
We remember how Mark Twain in his early impover- 
ished condition in San Francisco, met a lady of his 
acquaintance. Mr. Clemens had a cigar box under his 
arm and the inquisitive female asked whither he was 
going. Mark replied that he was moving, and opening 
the box, displayed a celluloid collar and a clay pipe. 
A trifle less than the two cows and the three hogs of 
Ancestor Hays. 

The Hays and Lampton families migrated from Vir- 
ginia to Kentucky at about the same period, and when 
Benjamin Lampton married Miss Hays in 1800, they 
were residing in Clark County. Uncle Ben, as he was 
called by his relatives and familiars, like his grandson 
Sam, was a rover and adventurer. In 1827, he made 


a trip of exploration into the almost unknown regions 
West of the Mississippi River. Upon his return he 
said to his son-in-law : "I have seen the finest timber 
in the world. The tall timber along the Missouri River 
is worked into boards and posts and rails with very 
little labor." He declared it different from Kentucky 
and Tennessee timber, that it was " straight grained," 
and that the drinking water was excellent and the 
springs abundant. A few years later, with another son- 
in-law, John A. Quarles, ad their families, they were 
on their way to Missouri, and settled in the hamlet of 
Florida, in Monroe County. It was here that Uncle 
Ben spent his declining years as a small country mer- 
chant, and died 12 March, 1837, when his grandson 
Samuel Clemens, was an infant of two yeors. 

"I was born in 1835, the same year my cousin, Sam, 
Clemens, was born," writes Elder Eugene J. Lampton, 
"and we grew up as boys together. When Sam's 
grandfather, Uncle Ben Lampton, was thought to be 
dying, our mothers lifted us up to kiss the dying man 
farewell. ' ' 

The town of Florida today is a place of two hun- 
dred population, and has remained the same, going 
neither forward nor backward in a hundred years. In 
the village cemetery, marked by a plain slab of marble, 
is still found the grave of Benjamin Lampton, and 
nestled by its side in a little grave covered with wild 
roses and brambles, sleeps little Margaret Clemens, 
oldest sister of Mark Twain, who died in 1835, at the 
age of twelve years. 

Jennie Lampton, or Jane, the mother of Mark Twain 
and daughter of Benjamin Lampton, was born in Ken- 
tucky in 1803, and was married there 28 May, 1823, to 
John Marshall Clemens. For a few years they lived in 
Tennessee, in Adair County, where for a brief time 
the father of Twain was postmaster at a settlement 
called Pall Mall. The tales brought by Ben Lampton 
of the rich country of Missouri encouraged them to 
move on to Florida, Missouri, whither they made the 
three days' journey by ox-cart. And here in Florida, 
in a small room of a log cabin in the rear of Ben 
Lampton 's store, Samuel Clemens was born, 30 Novem- 
ber, 1835. 


In his autobiography, Mr. Clemens says: "My 
mother was a Lamp ton, spelled it with a "p." The 
Lambtons in those days were poor spellers, hence the 
mistake. My mother's favorite cousin was James 
Lampton, who was the original of Colonel Sellers in 
The Gilded Age." This Uncle James Lampton lived at 
Marsolf Hill, near Louisiana, Missouri. He was a law- 
yer by profession but late in life became a travelling 
salesman. He was erect and tall and had a military 

According to a time honored custom, a mother gives 
name to her offspring. In the month of March, 1870, 
on the occasion of Jane Lampton Clemens paying a 
visit to the home of her daughter, Mrs. Permelia Mof- 
f ett, in St. Louis, the mother of Mark Twain made the 
following statement to several of her relatives: "My 
son Sam was named Samuel Lampton Clemens, after 
my uncle in Kentucky, one of the best men I ever knew. 
I named Sam after him to perpetuate the memory of 
a good man. ' ' 

Why Mark Twain discarded the Lampton from his 
name and substituted Langhorne, was never explained. 
As a boy he was plain Sam Clemens. As a youth he 
was Sam Clemens. As a miner and newspaper man 
in California he was likewise simply Sam Clemens. 
His first book, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Cal- 
averas County, published in 1867, bears simply the 
name of Mark Twain as the author. On the title page 
of his second book, The Innocents Abroad, published in 
Hartford, Conn., in 1869, appears Samuel L. Clemens, 
the initial "L." being used for the first time.

John Chambers was born in Derry County, Ireland, 
came to America about 1707, settled in Pennsylvania, 
moved to South Carolina, and settled in the fork of 
Lynch Creek, near Camden, Cheraw County. During 
the Revolution the Tories drove the settlers from 
Lynch 's Creek. They took refuge in York County and 
along the Catawba. Capt. John Chambers and family 
settled in York County. He had six children, one of 
whom, John Chambers, married Elizabeth Rutter. John 
Chambers was a captain in the Revolutionary war, 
served, in Sumter's army. He was born in 1742 and died 
in 1802, aged 60. His death was due to disease brought 
on from exposure when taken prisoner at the battle of 
Camden. Elizabeth, his wife, died in 1830 in her 88th 
year, was born in 1741.
